How to Make Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Cornbread

I have a really good Vegan Cornbread recipe that I make for my family, but am unable to enjoy because it uses all-purpose flour and isn’t gluten-free. I was inspired by a Facebook friend to make a gluten-free version and am happy to say I have just enjoyed the first piece of cornbread I’ve had in a long time!

This one is softer and lighter in texture and a seemed a tad bit dry to me compared to my other recipe, but maybe that’s expected with a gluten-free version? But, I can’t eat the other version, so I’m fine with it.

I actually liked mine plain, but after I drizzled a little maple syrup over it, it was even better. Also, try my Vegan Pumpkin Cornbread recipe!

How to Make Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Cornbread

This Recipe is :

Grain Free RecipesVegan


  • 1 cup organic non-GMO cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose gluten-free blend (I used Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Baking Flour)
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (non-aluminum)
  • 1 cup homemade almond milk
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flax seeds + 2 tablespoons water)
  • 1/4 cup organic coconut oil (melted/liquid)
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pink himalayan salt


  1. Put all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mix until well combined (avoid over mixing).
  2. Pour mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 – 25 minutes or until golden on top.
  4. Cool for 10 – 15 minutes before serving.
  5. Enjoy!

Just tried this recipe and not happy with results. Batter still gooey with recommended bake time. I baked it even longer and don\'t like texture. You can taste the coconut butter in the flavor. I wouldn\'t try this recipe again.

It would be nice if someone had an actual review for the recipe, instead of just dictating what type of cornmeal to use lol I will advise in about 20 minutes :)

The recipe clearly states non GMO organic corn, why all the hate? :p

What about the GMO factor of corn

How about GMO free? About 80% of all corn in the US is GMO.
